This degree gives you the ability to practise law in the complex information and technology environments generated by manufacturers, data processing consultancies and private and government organisations. Alternatively, you can choose to practise as computing professionals specialising in legal applications, information systems, or security. Information technology students receive a comprehensive curriculum allowing them to explore areas in information technology and gain a deep understanding in their chosen specialty. Areas of specialisation include business process management, data warehousing, digital societies, enterprise systems, information management, network systems, software engineering, and web technologies. In the law component, students develop advanced legal research and writing skills, and skills in interviewing, advocacy and dispute resolution. The course covers all academic subjects required for admission to legal practice and offers a range of law electives to align with career aims. Information technology subjects are taken in conjunction with law subjects throughout the first four years of the course, with law subjects only in the final semesters.
